My Introduction to Essential Oils
Though they are pricey, I still love doTERRA products. They are high quality and in my experience, work very well. I want to share my favorite product from doTERRA that I buy and use frequently.
My first exposure and real delve into the essential oil world was through DoTERRA. Though I have been tempted to enroll and sell DoTerra, I can never quite bring myself to take the plunge.
It is the DoTerra Breathe stick. DoTerra makes a highly effective blend called Breathe. It includes the essential oils eucalyptus, peppermint, tea tree, and lemon. All of these oils have properties that can help with respiratory health.
Easy to Use and Good Value
My good friend told me that DoTerra has formulated their Breathe oil into a pre-formulated rub, and I knew I wanted to try it. Because it comes in a stick form, it makes it extremely easy to use. This is critical because you often need this product in the middle of the night for relief of coughing. It is so easy to just grab and slather on whoever is in need of it.
Another good thing about the Breathe Stick is that compared to most of their products, it is relatively on the lower price end. I bought it from my friend who sells DoTerra and it has become a frequently used item in our medical supplies.
Effective Way to Relieve Coughing
Recently my 4-year-old daughter came down with the flu. This left her coughing a ton and generally feeling miserable.
I used the Breathe stick on her and definitely noticed that her cough quieted very quickly, especially at night. In all honesty, she doesn’t particularly enjoy the smell, but she willingly lets me apply it because the relief is pretty instantaneous. It is very aromatic and when we apply it to her chest and back, the essential oils are absorbed quickly and she gets immediate relief.
I have also used it on my other children when they have colds or coughs, and it has always resulted in less coughing. All in all, I am quite happy with the addition of Breathe as a choice in our home to use when we have colds and coughs.
I know there are many recipes and tutorials available that show you how to make your own rub using essential oils and natural ingredients and I know they are probably very effective, but for this busy mama, it is nice to have this pre-made option.
